Penglais Woods

Parc Natur Penglais/Penglais Woods is a designated Local Nature Reserve managed by Ceredigion County Council and local residents. It is a popular spot to visit but please be aware that the lighting of fires on the reserve is not allowed as this causes damage to vegetation and is a fire hazard. Timber stacks on the woodland floor are recent tree fellings and have been left as habitat piles. This work is part of the site’s ongoing woodland management programme to encourage natural regeneration.

Population versus the environment

"The UK population reached 61.4 million in mid-2008, having grown 408,000 in the previous year. More than two million people have been added to the UK population in the last seven years, and our numbers have increased by more than a fifth since 1950 - in less than a lifetime, in one of the most densely populated countries in the world."
